Obviously a malfunction during the export process. Seems that the preamble is missing. It should look similar to the following.
  1. %!PS-Adobe-2.0 EPSF-2.0
  2. %%Title: 20010613.eps
  3. %%Creator: gnuplot 3.7 patchlevel 1
  4. %%CreationDate: Tue Aug 07 20:42:00 2001
  5. %%DocumentFonts: (atend)
  6. %%BoundingBox: 50 50 410 302
  7. %%Orientation: Portrait
  8. %%EndComments

That text is raw postscript (or eps) code, so it looks like latex may not be interpreting the graphics properly. Can you post an MWE to show how you include the file.

Can you view the eps 'normally' outside of latex?

You are a board member for more than three years now and still don't know what a MWE is?! You have already been given according links in some of your former requests (and obviously didn't follow them). So here are some reminders [1-4]. It is expected that you follow the links and the instructions you will find ([1], [2] or [3] and [4]).
